those that support the war arent asking for money to be donated, but warm blood to be spilt ofn foreign soil.  you cant in all honesty ask someone to their face to go fight the iraqi war for you because the military and dying arent for you.

my point is that if the iraqi cause were legitimate, its supporters would  not turn down the opportunity to fight it.

comparing war to domestic crime is poor analogy

What exactly isnt just about it?

The fact that saddam flagrantly violated the terms of his surrender in 91 for over 10 years?

The fact that Iraq was a hotbed of terrorism?  (some claim that he may have had some doings in OKC)

The Fact that we need a base of operations in the middle east from which to fight the war on terror?

How about the Fact that Saddam buried close to a million people in mass graves?

How is it not just?

and just because they volunteered to be in the military doesnt make the iraqi war just.

Hey, I just wanted to know why those who think it is just aren't serving.

We can jump on the just war discussion later.

how about your testicles are small...

he may have done all of that but worse happened in sudan but we didnt intervene there did we?
none of those "facts" necessitate war
also, if it was so just why didnt we pass it through the UN
finally, f it is so just, then why doont you apply for a waiver and join the fight?

I think that you will find that a very large majority of active duty military do believe the war to be just, you may not but many actually fighting it do.  However, I really don't want to argue whether this war is just or not on this post; I don't believe that was it's original intentions.

LOL, you live in SoCal apparently, and I personally invite you to test your assertion at your convenience.
